Smart and Sustainable City Administration

Whenever we talk about smart or future cities, one of the most critical roles that comes to the spotlight is that of the city administration. City administrations must manage a complex mix of challenges including economic growth, social inclusion, biodiversity, pollution control, energy and utilities, public health, education, investments, industrial development etc. In India, city administrations mostly use predefined policies, processes, regulations, laws and acts - and thus many of these systems have been automated through the use of information systems. However the technologies being utilized are now often outdated - they have not yet leveraged the potential of the latest digital technologies like Mobile, Social, Analytics, Cloud, IoT, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and other emerging technologies. 

Many cities have yet to design an overarching digital technology blueprint that would allow them to re-imagine and re-engineer their entire way of governing and providing services to their constituents. Cities are still operating in the 'e-governance era' and have not yet transitioned to the 'Digital governance era', where there is a need to design, build and embrace a new generation of digital age software applications and infrastructure.

This Digital Conversation will cover:

  • How Smart Contracts, that leverage Blockchain Technologies, can provide smarter and more efficient automation of city policies and activities.
  • How IoT, AI, Analytics and Cloud technologies can be used to implement predictive and preventive maintenance of energy, gas, water and other utility infrastructure.
  • How Chatbots, Mobile Apps and Geo-Spatial Technologies can be used to deliver citizen services - anywhere, anytime, on any device.
  • How IoT and Analytics can be used to reduce pollution and improve air quality
  • The significance of having a Chief Digital Officer for each city and what would be their roles & responsibilities.
